#30 on Fanfiction on 7th December 2016 ----------------- "Manik (whispers)- I thought you loved me Nandini Nandini - I thought you trusted me Manik.." Hello Readers, my name is Akriti and this would be my first story on Manan. The story will focuses on the maturity and level headedness Manan and other characters gain with the age and circumstances and the effect it has on their relationships with each other and with their own self My story on Manan will shift between past and present 1. Past (2007-11) - All the characters will be in college during this time. All characters shall be pursuing professional degrees in different colleges. They all meet at SPACE which is an institute that provide part time certificate classes in music and dance. All the characters meet in SPACE. 2. Present (2016-) - The characters are pursuing their respective professional careers. FAB5 still pursue music apart from their professional careers. They still try to create music together, however, that's not mandatory. Everyone carries an individual identity as well apart from being the members of FAB5. Nandini has not taken music or dance professionally but still enjoys performing dance as and when the time permits. Music is an integral part of her life though she does not sing on stage now. As for me, I love writing, I was 12 when I wrote my first poem. Writing for me is my passion but I always kept it to myself. I have written a few general fictions too in the past but never published it. My stories were always too personal for me and I never published them anywhere. I always feared misuse of the content published. But that was until I started reading Manan FF's on India forums and wattpad. Seeing several stories on these platforms, I finally gathered the courage of publishing a story based MANAN written by me. I hope you guys like the story. It has inspirations from the show but is a little different in terms of the approach. Please do read and comment.
